GenerallyVFR conditions will hold through around 09z,
although a few patches of MVFR ceilings could briefly
reduce flight categories. After 09z, the coverage of showers
and thunderstorms moving onshore from the gulf will
increase, and could cause intermittent disruptions at area
terminals. Thunderstorm coverage will continue to increase
through the afternoon hours, with storms expected to linger
into the evening.

a weakening MCS pushed through the northern portion of the
area this afternoon producing some gusty winds across the
nature coast. At the present time, just a few light showers
remain across highlands and charlotte counties but most
spots are currently dry under mostly cloudy skies. For the
overnight, forecast is a bit tricky as its difficult to
determine if the aforementioned MCS remnants have
stabilized the northeast gulf enough to impact any
nocturnal morning showers activity from tampa northward that
we would typically expect with the mid upper level pattern
in place across the region. Recent runs of the hrrr keep
much of the area dry overnight but with deep moisture in
place and favorable dynamics feel its prudent to at least
keep some mention of pops in the forecast areawide
overnight. Current forecast has a handle on things well so
no changes made at this time for the evening update. That
being said, forecast remains tricky and showers and storms|
could develop at any time so additional updates could be
needed over the next few hours. Overnight conditions will
be quite warm and muggy with coastal locations not getting
out of the 80s with some mid and upper 70s expected inland.
elevated winds and choppy seas will be the rule through the
rest of the weekend and into early next week. Winds are
expected to increase tonight to near cautionary levels
across much of the forecast waters out of the west... And
remain at or above 15 knots into Monday. Conditions will
also favor scattered to numerous showers and storms.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
